'Sweet Threads" Cards by Sue W.

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue W. has created 2 different versions of a card using Hero Arts 'Sweet Threads' stamps, to share with you today. I hope you enjoy them.

Thank You Card
1.    Trim smooth white card to make a 5.5” x 4.25” top fold card.  Use a corner rounder to punch opposite corners.
2.    Stamp Hero Arts Sweet Threads Antique background to white card using vanilla ink. Trim to 4” x 5.25” and round opposite corners. Sponge all the edges.
3.    Wrap a length of ribbon across the front of the stamped background, securing to the right side.
4.    Using Versafine onyx black ink stamp a sentiment from Stamp It’s    Using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to position.
5.    Stamp 2 leaves and two small flowers to white card using Memento pear tart and summer sky. Cut images with small scissors making the second flower slightly smaller and pop it over the first image with a 3D foam square.
6.    Arrange the leaves and flower over the ribbon using Zip Dry glue.
7.    Using 3D foam squares add the card front to the base card.

Warmest Wishes Card:1.    Trim, score and fold ivory card to make a 5.75” x 4.25” side fold card.
2.    Stamp Sweet Threads Antique background using Memento London fog to ivory card. Trim to 1/8” smaller than base card.
3.    Using Swiss dots embossing folder emboss the background stamped piece.
4.    Stamp the solid flower from Sweet Threads Set to a post-it note and cut it out to make a mask.
5.    Using Memento rhubarb stalk, stamp the solid flower three times over the London fog stamped background using the mask to prevent over stamping.
6.    Stamp the sentiment to a piece of ivory card in rhubarb stalk trimming to make a banner.
7.    Using R59 Copic marker colour 6 white pearls and place 3 on the end of the banner and one in the centre of each flower.
